The ugly truth
Starbuck [12:35] Comments: 2 []
My wife was telling me last night about a Daily Hell-reading colleague, who was convinced that all Muslims should be forced to leave the country, and that we should never allow people people to have asylum in this country. She refused to accept any arguments to the contrary.

Words fail me, but they certainly wouldn't had I been a part of that particular "discussion".

How can people be so selfish, so stupid, so ignorant of pretty much every facet of an issue, so hateful?

When I saw yesterday the front pages of the Daily Mail and the Daily Express - those rascist bastions of middle-England - equating the London bombers'with asylum (two of them being the sons of asylum seekers) I wasn't at all suprised, but I still felt that sickness in my gut that I get EVERY time I see the front-page xenophobic rage of these two asylum-obsessed rags.

"Ashamed to be British?" Ashamed to be human, more like.

Well, I don't have a clue what Vex is talking about, so I can't really comment.

(Scarily, however, my online nom-de-plume when I was a kid, oh, YEARS ago used to be "Vex". This really isn't me, however. Or at least I don't think I'm experiencing any Tyler Durden-style multiple personalities...)

Btw Vex's mention of the IRA prompts me to hope against hope that their recent announcement achieves what we hope it should.

It just goes to show what dialogue can achieve.
